Hey friends! To keep up with all of our Christmas projects, make sure to FOLLOW us on Instagram!
Welcome to Day 1 of the 12 Days of Christmas Event!
You guys know my love for cheap but thoughtful gifts! With 5 kiddos, and a huge family I am always trying to find awesome gift ideas that don’t break the bank.
I love photo gifts! This is a super simple, cheap and cute way to display photos.
Here is how mine turned out…
Cost to make these babies??
Woohoo! It makes a great gift for friends and family.
And, here is how I made it!
For those of you that don’t have a saw… This is one you need to have. You can EASILY cut this project and so many others on our site using this. Cheap and easy… Promise!
That’s a stocking stuffer gals! Come on… You will thank me! This is a perfect ‘craft’ saw, and you would be shocked at how many projects you can do with it!
You can also have the hardware store cut the wood for you. HD has a handsaw just like this one in the wood section at all times.
If you don’t have a drill, you can also use a hammer and a small nail. Just hammer the nail into where you want your holes. and then remove the nail using the other end of the hammer. Voila!
That’s it for the building part!
Now you are ready for the FREE printables!
I decided to give you guys some options for these! I made 4 to choose from. Whether you are making this as a gift to someone else or for yourself, I got you covered! 😉
To print these, just click the photo for each one. Once it opens, just click print from your top browser bar.
I printed mine on cream colored 8.5×11 cardstock. I like the weight of cardstock paper for this project, and you can get it super cheap at any craft store.
I chose to use upholstery tacks to hold my paper in place. These can be found at any craft or hardware store. They are really cheap and cute.
You can also find some HERE on Amazon!
They are also really easy to remove by using a small screwdriver under the head of the nail. This makes changing out your printable really easy!
Your final step is adding photos! I like to print my photos out on photo paper at home. This saves me lots of money, and keeps me from dragging my 5 kiddos to Walmart to pick up photos… Win win!
I cut my photos out, put them on the display and I was DONE. So quick, so cheap, but still so cute! My kind of project! And… Did I mention I made these babies for…
Yah… Just making sure!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
I would love for you to share this $3 gift with your friends and PIN it of course!!
